      Skipping meals is not good for you. The more meals you eat, the faster your metabolism is. Aim for 5-6 small meals a day.

    i recommend researching the studies shown in intermittent fasting (IF)….it actually goes against the”many small meals” which was a rule that popped up in the 80’s with very little evidence to back it.

    “Dr. Mark Mattson, laboratory chief of neurosciences at the National Institute on Aging and a professor of Neuroscience at Johns Hopkins University has done research on IF and says “Our genes, our genetics, are geared to us having food intermittently. … I’m comfortable with saying that it’s healthy, it’s fine, to skip meals. The animal studies are very clear. … I think it’s better to eat one meal a day than six small meals. You need to challenge your system. … It’s OK not to eat three meals a day. It’s OK a couple days a week to eat just one meal. It’s actually not only OK, it’s healthy.” Mattson practices IF himself, skipping breakfast and lunch during the week, and rarely exceeding 2000 kcals/day. He’s 130 pounds at five foot nine inches. He says he gets most of his calories from whole grains, nuts, fish, and yogurt.[20]”

    Just some friendly food for thought.

    That’s right. Skipping meals slows down your metabolism causing you to gain that much more weight when you do eat. Eat whenever you’re hungry, just in small amounts.
